It would help if you stated on what machine you tried Skype - Laptop, tablet. desktop or what?

"Tried the echo test but no sound" - No sound from Skype telling you what to do or you couldn't hear your own voice?

Probably you couldn't hear your own voice. In Skype go to Tools - Options - Audio Settings and check that your mic is selected and that when you speak the volume moves with a green bar.

It was on my laptop and i feel a bit of a idiot because the reason I could not hear anything was because the volume was turned down on my laptop but still dont know she could not hear me
